Dinosaur Comics is a constrained webcomic by Canadian writer Ryan North. It is also known as "Qwantz", after the site's domain name, "qwantz.com". The first comic was posted on February 1, 2003, although there were earlier prototypes. Dinosaur Comics has also been printed in three collections and in a number of newspapers. The comic centers on three main characters, T-Rex, Utahraptor and Dromiceiomimus.

Comics are posted on most weekdays. Every strip uses the same artwork; only the dialogue changes from day to day. There are occasional deviations from this principle, including a number of episodic comics. Dinosaur Comics has been compared to David Lynch's The Angriest Dog in the World comic, and makes references to it. The strips take on a wide variety of topics, including ethical relativism, the nature of happiness, and the secret to being loved. North created the comic because it was something he'd "long wanted to do but couldnít figure out how to accomplish... [he doesn't] draw, so working in a visual medium like comics isnít the easiest thing to stumble into."

This comic is fascinating. Every one is exactly the same framing and images, they only change the dialogue. And yet, somehow, they manage to make it awesome and hilarious and original EVERY SINGLE TIME.

How do they do that? I don't know, but I'm going to keep reading, if only to see how long they can keep it up.

Ok. I can't really say enough about Yelp being an internet bully especially when it comes to smaller businesses. I understand that you have to keep a site moving by having advertisements and what not. But when it comes to small business owners wanting control over their own yelp page and web pr...

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
